    Wow, that is cool. i don't get how the steel part of the handle/bolster is connected though. Does it start out as part of the blade? i.e. welded or something? Just curious how it works.

    Thank you Todd,
    the bolster is just pinned like you would normally do a bolster. the process is called cold welding...
    pins are inserted true the bolster and blade, then hammered on both sides, this makes the pin expand and swell and seals all the voids in the hole, the excess is then grinded off and if you did it right the pins become blended in to the bolster.
